Panevino Restaurant Las Vegas, NV

Overlooking McCarran International Airport, Panevino Ristorante and Gourmet Deli has received rave reviews for both its food and its impressive architecture.  Bordered by a sloped and curved structural wall of glass accomplished through the use of sloped and skewed tube-steel columns hidden within the window mullions, the dining area provides breathtaking views of the airport and the Las Vegas Strip.  The result is a roof structure that appears to float over the dining area and garden beyond.  Wright Engineers was responsible for the structural design.
